Three tenure openings at John Jay College

The Department of Public Administration at John Jay College, Public Management, has three tenure-track/tenured openings, at the Assistant or Associate level, beginning in August 2014. Must have a Ph.D. degree in area(s) of experience or equivalent. Also required are the ability to teach successfully, demonstrated scholarship or achievement, and ability to cooperate with others for the good of the institution. Applications are due by November 12, 2013.

The job description is here: http://chronicle.com/jobs/0000795229-01/
**They are expanding their Urban Affairs specialization and Public Policy specialization, and faculty in those areas are especially encouraged to apply.**
The dept. runs one of the largest MPA programs in the country; they also host two undergraduate degrees (Public Administration and Criminal Justice Management) and a PhD specialization in Criminal Justice Policy. Students are drawn to the program for their specialties in emergency management, criminal justice policy, and inspection and oversight.
This is their third year in a row of hiring, and interested candidates will find an energetic, collegial faculty in a College that is also on the upswing. The College has been actively hiring and dedicating increased resources to faculty research and scholarship, and is expanding its focus on justice beyond traditional criminal justice frameworks. The College has a small institutional feel within the larger CUNY network that offers opportunities for collaborative research and working with doctoral students outside of criminal justice.
They are a Hispanic-serving institution; students are incredibly diverse, and mostly working professionals in the MPA program. The teaching load is high but there are reduced teaching expectations for junior faculty pursuing research.
The campus is in the heart of Manhattan and is an important community institution, hosting local political events, housing evacuees after Hurricane Sandy, and bringing diverse cultural exhibits to campus.
Interested candidates may contact Leigh Graham at lgraham@jjay.cuny.edu if they have questions. Applications should be filed through the CUNYfirst system.
